My guest this week is Kenneth George, one of the very first local leaders I met when I started to work as a political advisor back in 2007. Until recently, Kenneth was among the longest serving school commissioners in Montreal and definitely, in my opinion, the one most present and involved. He was a regular at our office and that’s because he always brought new and refreshing ideas on how to improve our local schools and, as such, the lives of the families living in our district. Needless to say, that most of his ideas came with a request of a rather large sum of government funding, but nothing made us happier to support his projects because they made sense and were necessary for the development and advancement not only of our schools but our community at large. On this episode we discuss his journey as an academic and what encouraged him to run for public office as a school commissioner. Also, we discuss the recent education reform of the Quebec government which brought forth the abolishment of school boards, the impact it already has and will continue to have on the students, their parents and the teaching personnel. I hope you enjoy this conversation!
